Alvaro Palacios Camins del Priorat 2014...$23.99(fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks and aged for eight months in French oak casks of varying size): Brilliant ruby. Intense, spice-accented, ripe black and blue fruits, violets and smoky, mineral aromas build in the glass. The sweet, expansive palate reveals concentrated blueberry and boysenberry flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. The finish clings with excellent tenacity, providing a framework for the wine's exuberant dark fruit.
